About AIDA Cruises
The AIDA fleet has been sailing the world's oceans since 1996 and is very successful on the German cruise market with a casual and informal concept. There is no fixed table order and you are welcome to leave your formal attire at home. AIDA Cruises convinces with a variety of buffets, a good sports program and varied entertainment. The age structure on board is mixed and depends on the destination. Young couples and families in particular quickly find a connection here. AIDA Cruises is very popular with cruise newcomers, but many guests who have once traveled on an AIDA ship also return again and again enthusiastically. German is spoken almost exclusively on board.
AIDAdiva was put into commission in 2007, was built in the Meyer Shipyard in Germany and is constructed nearly identically as its sister ships AIDAbella and AIDAluna. It was modernized last in May 2015. Maximum 2,500 passengers spend a wonderful holiday aboard of the approx. 252-metre long AIDAdiva. It is the first ship of the Sphinx class. AIDAdiva can be recognized well by the glass walls of the Theatrium where impressive shows take place. Due to the mix of entertainment, sports and wellness AIDAdiva suits very well to families.

Atmosphere on board
The ships of AIDA Cruises are famous for their relaxed and informal atmosphere. The daily program includes a lot of sports activities and entertainment highlights. Places like the AIDA Lounge with a small library or the Wellness Oase are calm places. One of the best places to see the sail away is the Anytime Bar which turns into a disco in the evening.
There are four buffet restaurants where various dishes are offered. Pizzeria Mare with its Mediterranean atmosphere is one of these restaurants. The pizza and snacks are very delicious. For special occasions we recommend a dinner in the Gourmet Restaurant Rossini. For an additional fee the unique menus are available. In addition, there are the Buffalo Steak House and the Sushi Bar in which the food has to be paid extra as well. Reservations are recommended because the à la carte restaurants are very popular. Numerous bars inside and outside are great places to enjoy the first coffee in the morning or the last cocktail in the evening.
